    Difference between winning and loosing, and that may ultimately be our tourney downfall.

    freethrows win games. just a couple more made and both losses would have been wins.

    I also think psychology is killing us. If we hit free throws the last 6 games we would have had 12-15 point leads and then when the other team goes on a 6-8 point run, no big deal. When we miss our free throws we have a 5-7 point lead and the other team ties/takes the lead and gains momentum and confidence. If we just hit the damn free throws the other team would be demoralized when they never can turn the corner and they wouldn't play with the same confidence at the end of the game. We keep letting teams think they can beat us.

    Free throws will prove to be our swirling vortex of doom.

    It's just sad to consistently see this team shoot below 40% on offense, below 30% 3pt shooting and below 55% from the freethrow line. With the exception playing OSU, this is now 6 + games.

    it's his annual slump time. Hopefully it's shorter than last year.

    I can't wrap my head around, how Miller can be such a stud at free throws, but the team he coachs can suck sooooo bad at them

    Free throws are critical when you think that your school can make a run for a title. The guys need to step up.

    To play devil's advocate (pun intended)...realize that ASSU made one less free throw than the Cats and shot a mere 15/26.

    Both teams were miserable and there were many ore things than could have been improved upon last night.

    maybe it's a fatigue thing? since miller is incessant on playing his starters. i dont remember anyone else in the game for the last 20 minutes.

    Miller's previous four teams here:

    2013: 74.9% (22nd in nation)
    2012: 70.5% (121st)
    2011: 74.6% (31st)
    2010: 73.3% (37th)

    Hell, at Xavier he only had one team shoot below 72%.

    It has nothing to do with Miller. It's THIS team.

    We all knew it was going to happen, just sucks it was against the wevils.... Not sure what disappoints me more, the fact they seem to be getting WORSE from the stripe or that they were HORRIBLE to start with.

    Bottom line, Ashley hid many of the flaws on this team, now that cover is no longer there.
